Scholarship Information

Montgomery College's STEM Scholars Program has a limited number of scholarships for the Spring 2022 semester.  Each scholarship will cover the cost of tuition of a three-, four-, or five-credit honors class at the in-county rate.  All applications received by December 20, 2021 will receive full consideration.  Applications received after December 20, 2021 will be reviewed if funds for awards are still available.  Scholarship funds will be awarded in the form of a credit to the student's MC account, and will be disbursed the third week of the Spring 2022 semester.

Students already receiving another MC scholarship (Board of Trustees, Montgomery Scholars, Macklin Business Institute, or Renaissance Scholars) are not eligible.  Students on a F1 visa are not eligible for the scholarship.
